Problem with autoplay

  [email protected] 14:52 24 Apr 2004

A mate of mine has a laptop but all of a sudden it has stopped autoplaying whenever he puts a disc in whether it be a software disc a dvd or an audio disc. Any ideas why? Also whenever he starts a dvd it plays in wmp but he wants it to play in windvd or something like that. How does he make windvd his default player.

Many Thanks

Open "My Computer", right click on the DVD drive and select Properties. In the "AutoPlay" tab, set up the default behaviour for the various types of disk.

If that doesn't help, "TweakUI" has a setting to enable/disable Autoplay.

load up windvd and go to options. There might be a use this as my default player option.

Thanks NGE but there doesn't seem to be that option available.

In media player go to tools/options/filetypes and untick 'dvd video'.

When you insert the dvd it should ask which programme you want to use to run it.
